tonight and most of tomorrow. actually this problem with our high fire danger began in november and december when we got so much rain. that promoted so much growth in the hills. now all of that green that grew all spring long has really turned brown over the next couple of weeks. this little area that we're in here it's kind of a microcosm of what's going on for mount diablo. when you factor in extra fire danger like low humidity and high wind. you've got a big problem. so we're talking about that coming up over the next 24 hours. high fire danger and red flag warning in effect. here's how dry we've been. we're talking rainfall percentages for the year well below 30%. san francisco sitting at 24%, san jose 23. and livermore 21%. well below normal. live look outside from our dublin cam. you see a lot more brown than you did a couple of weeks ago. here's our satellite imagery showing you a huge ridge of
high pressure. give us that offshore east to northeast wind that drops the humidity and really shooting up the temperature. the heat begins tomorrow as high pressure begins to build to the north and all of us get that north to northeast wind. that offshore wind, record highs are likely with the two hottest days which will likely be thursday and friday. when high pressure is at its strongest and the offshore wind will also be at it strongest. here's what to expect. it'll be breezy tomorrow. it'll be hotter tomorrow, you will notice the increase especially in the afternoon. record highs are likely. on both thursday and friday especially friday. if it's simply too hot too early, it's coming, you have to be patient. a much bigger dip of that cooler weather will be here coming up on sunday and monday of next week. high temperatures tomorrow. warm, mid- to upper 80s. san m ateo you will hit 79.

and 5% relative humidity. fire dangers are high and the temperatures are going higher by the end of the day. back to you in the studio. >> paul, thank you. in an effort to kick the caffeine you gave up coffee. that's just great. but now you need to check your food. the unlikely places you're still getting a caffeine kick. >> but first, here's a look at your new eastern span of the bay bridge. look at them kids.
